More Tips for Making Your Guac Reign Supreme
• Roll your limes on the counter to get more juice out. If your limes are dry, microwave them for about 10 to 15 seconds.
• For mild guac, discard chile seeds and ribs before dicing and adding; for extra heat, leave them in.
• Soak chopped red onions in cold water for 10 minutes to beef up their crispness and lessen their bite.
• Toast cumin in a skillet over medium-high heat till fragrant to boost flavor.
• Keep cilantro with stem ends down in a glass of water in the fridge; it'll keep for about a week that way.
